A writer's ramblings on the Insecure Writer's Support Group #IWSG

Welcome to my December posting for ISWG. Where we: post our thoughts, talk about our doubts, any fears we may have conquered, discuss our struggles and triumphs, and offer a word of encouragement for others who are struggling.

This month - being the holiday season - I'm going to discuss a recent triumph. I just completed teaching a beginner's fiction writing course. It was a great experience and from the comments on the course reviews the students benefited as much as I enjoyed teaching it.

We wandered off track on occasion as the students (all adults) asked questions about what a writer's life is like and how do I find the time to write and do promotion and still have time for my real life. I answered honestly - that there are days when no I can't do it all. The writing slides. The vacuuming slides.

I'll remember the puzzled looks on their faces as I discussed POV and passive verbs. And I will be forever grateful to all those other authors who Facebook post those little funny sayings - so I could have one up at the start of each class. It was often a jumping off point for the class.

I've included one - just 'cuz. (although it is painfully true.)

Here's hoping everyone's holiday season is not too stressful and see you in the new year.
